260 South Street blocks water views, affect air. Similarly, what about the air condition and views of 275 Cherry shadows?
The EIS will consider the effects of the proposed projects on air quality. It will also analyze the effect created by the projects on views from public vantage points. Views from private locations are not considered in an EIS, but along with views from the courtyard, interior facing units and public spaces, they were taken into account when designing the proposed building envelop for 260 South Street.
While the proposed 260 South Street building will obstruct South Street-facing windows in the 265 and 275 Cherry Street buildings, all of the affected rooms have other windows providing light and air that will remain unobstructed. The massing of the proposed building prioritizes light and air to the well-used public spaces within 265-275 Cherry Street, such as the courtyard and the Rutgers Slip open space. The management team at 265-275 Cherry Street has always worked closely with residents and will continue to be available to resolve any concerns.
